Countdown to the Create a Smile March Release!

**this is my 2nd post of the day! to see the Newton's Nook Designs March Release GIVEAWAY post, scroll down or click here!**

hello again!
what an exciting time!
Create a Smile stamps is getting ready to release their March stamps on Friday!!

i'm so excited - these stamps are cute and so FUN!
i created two cards with two different stamp sets!

the first card uses the new Happy Days stamp set!

i used my Distress Paints (Barn Door, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed, Squeezed Lemonade and Seedless Perserves) to create quick swooooooshes of color! i don't know how else to describe it! ha! i LOVE that simple way to create a bold, pretty background!

once it was dry, i heat embossed the phrases to create an adorable, Happy Everything card! :) i also did a lot of actual distressing to the edges of the paper - LOVE how that looks!

my second card uses that cute little Happy Mail stamp set!

i stamped the snail onto watercolor paper and then used my Distress Markers to watercolor him in! once he was all dry, i fussy cut him out and popped him up!

that background was created by using the packaging technique and Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron Distress Inks! 
this is such a simple, but happy card, perfect to send a little cheer to someone in need!

please be sure to head over to the Create a Smile Stamps blog to see the rest of the AMAZING cards and stamp sets being released! :)
